On June 24, 2011, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration released a PowerPoint presentation on Mexico’s new private sector data protection law that was shared at a meeting of the OECD Working Party on Information Security and Privacy by Mexico’s Ministry of Economy and Federal Institute for Access to Information and Data Protection (“IFAI”).  The presentation provides guidance on the creation of privacy notices and establishment of self-regulatory schemes, and also outlines the responsibilities of the Ministry of Economy and the IFAI with respect to implementation of the law.  As we previously reported, the requirements concerning self-regulation and providing privacy notices to consumers go into effect this July, with the balance of the law, granting individual participation rights to consumers, effective in January 2012.
